The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Kia Sedona is a spacious, comfortable family van, but it lacks the modern design flair and high-value presentation that marks the rest of the brand's lineup. The Nissan Quest may drive well, but its below-average seating and safety put it behind the rest of the minivan options on the road today.
